Elk Barf Hay   (+4, -1)  [vote for, against]
Keep deer at bay, the halfbakery way!

Deer are known to spread disease among cattle. Tracking deer down to vaccinate them against disease has only limited success.

The idea is to make cattle fodder smell like the scents that deer hate. A pungent mixture of marigolds, putrescent egg solids, mint, wolf urine, tansy, garlic, thyme, oregano, sage, rosemary, and lavender.

This idea is in no way inspired by the comment that Estimate Masters sounded like an anagram.

Easily one of the best stinky-hay-to-make-elk's-barf ideas I've read this week. [+]

But won't it make the cows barf as well?
-- doctorremulac3, May 08 2022

Yes, but cow barf hay is not as good for an anagram
-- not_only_but_also, May 08 2022

Okay... but why would cattle like those smells any more than the deer?

Honestly I thought the title was an anagram for something else.

WIFRT, I thought it was food FOR the elk; an "elk buffet".
But needs parsley; then it will be ready for Scarborough Fair.

I'm not sure elk barf is stringy enough to make hay out of.

Why yes, I'll have a parfait...

Is elk barf hay actually pig latin for something? Pig latin for elk barf hay is elkyay arfbay hay so that doesn't help.

This is some kind of puzzle right?

A puzzle? You can Flak Ya Herb it is!
-- not_only_but_also, May 10 2022

Well, "Miss Ann Elk" is clearly an anagram of "limn snakes", but I'm not sure how that helps.

A Flaky Herb it shall be.
